To start off the week, men’s golf took eighth place at the Guy W. Kuhn Invitational hosted by Allegheny College on Sept. 14-15. The Pioneers were in seventh place with a score of 317 on Sunday, but then fell one spot in the final round on Monday with a score of 327. The top scorers, who tied for 27th place shooting 160 over 36 holes, were Eric Poplowski (77-83) and Diego Ortiz (79-81).

“Our 2014-2015 Point Park golf team features a lot of talent. We have two returning national tournament qualifiers in Collin Holmes and me.” said Poplowski. “Along with two new transfers that will allow us to compete at the national level in the spring once again. Unfortunately, we lost our captain Collin Holmes to injury this fall, which has limited our ability to compete with the NCAA teams we play in the fall.” 



Women’s golf placed third at the St. Vincent Invitational on Tuesday, Sept. 16. The team had a score of 358, which was the best score of the fall. Point Park’s top individual scorers were Emily Slifka, who placed fifth, Lauren Martauz, who tied for seventh, and Chloe Callison, who tied for 10th. Other fall tournament wins have included second place at Grove City College and third place at Westminster College. The team’s next event will be the Allegheny Invitational Sept. 28-29.

“Being a top scorer felt rewarding to have the low score, but at the same time it’s bittersweet because you want a win for the time, and that just hasn’t happened for us yet,” Slifka said. “I know we all have the capabilities, we just all need to perform our best at the same time. I just hope to help our team win some matches this year. That will be the most rewarding feeling.” 



Women’s soccer shut out West Virginia Tech on the road with a final score of 3-0 on Tuesday, Sept. 16. Audra Lewis set the tone for the game scoring the first goal in the eighth minute. The next goal was made by Alyson Joyce after halftime making the score 2-0. The last goal was made by Lewis, which made a comeback impossible for West Virginia Tech.  Their next game took place at home against Walsh University Thursday, Sept. 18 where they were shut out 3-0.  They fell behind in the first minute and could not seem to come back. To top off the week, the team had another shutout game at home against University of Rio Grande on Saturday, Sept. 20. This was a Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) game and they lost 2-0 although their attack was fierce. They made more shots than Rio Grande, but could not seem to get the ball in the net thanks to Rio Grande’s goalkeeper, Allison Keeney.

“I think the team felt very motivated and proud that we played so well against West Virginia Tech,” Lewis said.
